***************This contest will run from now till Feb. 21st.*****************

I thought it would be fun to teach everyone how to capture silhuettes.  You can do this indoors or outdoors.  What you have to do is meter your exposure for the light.  There has to be light behind your subject.  The best time for outdoor silhuettes is during the sunrise or during the sunset because that is when the sky is most beautiful.  A lot of people don't know that you can do silhuettes outdoors in broad daylight!  This is usually accomplished by raising your fstop up pretty high.  Just play with the settings till you get it right.  Like I said, meter for the light behind your subject, not the light on your subject!  Have fun and be creative!!

Here are some examples of mine.  I will post the settings to them as well.  I have a maternity shoot coming up soon that I am going to take silhuettes in too!

Here are examples of mine from an engagement session:
